NASCAR: Bad Brad Wins Cup, Angry Jeff Takes Checker, Five Time Flops

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Rick Hendrick was in Victory Lane on Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway, confetti flying all around him, his clothes drenched with some sort of adult beverage.

Instead, Hendrick was celebrating a first Homestead win with Jeff Gordon as Johnson explained in the media center how he let the title get away, as Brad Keselowski celebrated his first championship with the biggest Miller Lite beer glass in history.
